The British Government is reportedly close to reaching a solution on the Irish border after Brexit.

"We are looking for significantly more clarity than we now have from the British negotiating team", Coveney told parliament in Dublin, adding that "constructive ambiguity" from Britain would not suffice.

He said he was confident that no veto would be cast at the mid-December summit. "If it is not possible to do that, so be it".

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said on Wednesday that progress had been made in talks on the issue, though it was not yet sufficient.

He said: "The one thing that the European Union doesn't want is a divergence in regulatory standards between the north and south of Ireland, if that was to happen then you would need a hard border".

The party ratcheted up the pressure on Thursday by suggesting it might withdraw its support for May's government.

"We will not support any arrangements that create barriers to trade between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom or any suggestion that Northern Ireland, unlike the rest of the UK, will have to mirror European regulations", DUP leader Arlene Foster said on Saturday.

The issue is a major sticking point in the negotiations and must be dealt with before trade talks can begin.

Barnier said on Wednesday the summit would be able to discuss a transition period and that the European Union would define a "framework" next year of the "new partnership" with Britain that would follow the transition.
